Devon priest was inspiration for Dracula

Recommended Posts


"The team behind the BBC's popular Sherlock series are creating a new Dracula show for the BBC and Netflix .

"The programme will draw on the novel by Bram Stoker, who apparently originally found out about the blood-sucking demon from a priest in Devon.

"Writer Andy Struthers insists that rather than Vlad the Impaler, Mr Stoker took his inspiration for the famous virgin killing vampire from the clergyman.

"Andy's book ''Dracula Incarnate : Unearthing The Definitive Dracula'' says the Gothic character is actually based on the works of Sabine Baring-Gould from Exeter - who would have much preferred drinking cider to blood."
